Malloy Pursues the New GOP Nominee

By Mark Pazniokas

Gov. Dannel P. Malloy tonight pushed his idling re-election campaign to full-throttle, aiming in one speech to take down the newly minted Republican nominee and lift up a Democratic base unsettled by a slow economic recovery and their candidate’s tepid poll numbers. Image

On the night after Tom Foley won the GOP nomination, Malloy skewered the Greenwich businessman as unwilling to share an economic vision and tone-deaf to the needs of working families. He spoke before an audience of partisans who paid between $185 and $2,000 to attend the 66th annual Jefferson Jackson Bailey Dinner.

“Let me be very clear. Tom Foley will not tell you what his plan is any detail,” Malloy said, amplifying criticism leveled at Foley during the GOP primary by John P. McKinney, who endorsed Foley earlier in the day. “This is a crafty fellow with a crafty message.”

On Thursday, Malloy will campaign at two diners in East Hartford, not far from Pratt & Whitney Aircraft, a subsidiary of United Technologies, the beneficiary of a economic assistance deal meant to stabilize its employment and deepen its roots in Connecticut.
